RE: '87 5KTQ door handles and locks. HELP!!!!

I had this happen on the drivers door a year ago, and replaced the handle
mechanism myself. After finding this list and poking around the web, I
gather that it is a common problem. Somewhere there is a rebuild kit
available -- check the web. I bought the whole handle assembly from Audi
(minus the lock cylinder -- you can reuse yours for the fronts), but
apparently this rebuild kit is much cheaper. Anyway, I didn't have too much
trouble doing it, it's not that tricky; I believe there are BTDTs in the
list archives.
